The Kommersant newspaper published a photograph of Dzhennet Abdurakhmanova posing with a handgun. A man with his arm around her, also holding a gun, is identified as Umalat Magomedov, whom the paper describes as a militant leader killed by government forces in December.

The picture was sent to Moscow police, together with biographical details about Abdurakhmanova, by Dagestan's ministry of internal affairs, Kommersant said.
